Event Details

For over 70 years the U.S. has supported the illegal and invasive occupation of Palestine by the Government of Israel. How are we to cope with the fact that our country, almost alone in the world, is responsible for this violation of Human Rights?

Our series begins with humor because it is the most bearable coping device. Through satire we get perspective on our common humanity. Then we look at how Gazans try to make their desperate situation known to the world, how families endure when their children are forcibly removed from their homes and placed in military prisons, and how they cope when their homes are demolished before their eyes. Finally, we explore some of the factors explaining why the U.S. leads the way in supporting this occupation.
